Students are screened during the initial session to discern the nature of their reading difficulty. A treatment plan is recommended based on results of the screening. Regular progress reports are provided.
Students attend twice per week for 50 minutes each session. It takes approximately 2 years to complete the recommended lessons. Length of completion time varies by individuals.
Lessons are held at Bethany Lutheran Church in Escanaba, located at 202 South 11th Street.
